Do men prefer women who are ladylike or the opposite?

I have an affinity for tomboys.

But to be honest.,If I "like" someone(specifically a girl)it is because I have begun to like who they are.How "ladylike" or not isn't really a part of someone as a whole to me.And I'd rather a unique personality that is ones own, than one that acts a part aiming to attract.

I prefer them to be who they are. No more, no less.

I myself could be described as "a tomboy with a girly streak".

I like people who share the same hobbies as me, are kind, and are honest. I've liked tomboys and I've liked more traditional personality types, the most important thing is to be who you are and be the best version of yourself.

Personally, for me they have to be SOMEWHAT ladylike.

However, I have to differentiate between sensually feminine, sweet, a little shy, and simply being manipulative, prissy, and entitled (which is frequently mistaken for being ladylike).

I've known many women who were tomboys with feminine frills (including my best female friend) and women who try REALLY HARD to capitalize on their gender, both are equally turnoffs for me.

Not really, since its not a huge swing-type trait for me. It just happens that I get along well with the 'not ladylike' types on a base level which can go further or stay where it is based on the situation (i.e. if she were to want to push forward or stay friends). Ladylike are prob not going to have an easy time getting close to me (which is already a hard task) but its not like I consider it to be a negative. Its just that the 'dudette' gets bonus appeal vs the ladylike's neutral (no appeal gained nor lost).

Different guys like different personalities, same for women. I don't really have a preference, If I get along with her and we click with the same interest she can be more ladylike/tomboy or something in between and I'd be fine with it.

I guess I'm in the minority here. I don't mind the opposite as friends only, I have many tomboy friends but I hate it when they curse or smoke or look like they haven't taken a bath in days.

As a girl, I love the gentleman-ish type of guy. When I meet a guy I like, I try to be more lady-like (I'm not faking it) just because the guys I usually fall for are such gentlemen <3 I don't like guys who smoke, curse too much, and behave rudely.

Hmm... guess I don't really care, would rather a girl be herself than pretend and put up a facade about who she actually is. That said I am drawn towards the more tomboyish or sportsy girls.

Women that are more ladylike (but not as volatile-ly fragile as glass during an earthquake) are better partners for intimacy.

Women that are very un-ladylike are "great for parties" or "great as friends only" due to relatability.

Opinions would differ based on other people's personal experiences or magnetism, but that's the trend as I know it.

Honestly, I feel like I can relate to the description given in this video. I do not act very ladylike, yet I do not mind dresses and I am okay with things like makeup or nail polish, but my personality is a real turnoff, apparently. I guess I have more of a unique personality, rather than being a tomboy. I know for a fact I make more friends than I do love interests. I mean, is it true guys would rather have someone who is fragile than someone who isn't as ladylike?

I suppose I prefer more ladylike women.... so long as they're not- and this may come across wrongly- 'meek', or overly deferential....?
Not implying that being a lady means "shut up and do what the MAN says"- not in the least. I like women who are able to be elegant and gentle, but also be able to stand their ground without getting angry or riled up when challenged.

I like a woman who can be sexy with that lady-like charm but also like a woman who can keep up with me. A girl who's always worrying about her hair and makeup is not really an attractive aspect on a woman. I don't care for makeup and I don't mind if a woman's hair gets a little messy, like who cares? Are you trying to impress me? or other guys around you? If you're trying ti impress me then don't really worry about it. If my girl is to much of a tomboy then it may be less intimate moments, less time for me to indulge in sexiness.

Luckily my girl is exactly what like and look for in a woman. She can dress nice and be very sexy and attractive but also got that personality where she can keep up. She enjoys video games, she enjoys playing sports, anime, lots of sex, she don't mind getting dirty here and there and so on. I couldn't ask for anything better.

I have a friend who just like the girl in that video. After knowing her a few years she decided she was a lesbian.

And no, I did not turn her gay. There was nearly half a decade and 2 boyfriends between me briefly dating her and her sudden burst of clarity.
